Nitpicks: What about other hybrids? And what about the Douards? V
[[In the University's cafetaria, the students talk about the class. Linde the orange-haired faerie is talking to Bleiz. Grendel is talking to his buddies at a separate table.]] / Linde: Don't worry, I'm not offended. / Bleiz: Uh... / Linde: I'm amused! Wild boy has the hots for me! / Grendel: "Degeneracy"! I can tell orthodox history still has this institute in its grip!
Linde: While I'm embarrassing you... how does that work, anyway? I haven't actually noticed any... you know? / Grendel: It's the unfairness of it that bugs me, y'know? They can't defend themselves 'cause they've been hounded to the corners of the earth!
[[Bleiz is distracted by Grendel's conversation. Grendel speaks off-panel.]] / Linde: Oh, I'm sorry. I'll shut up if it's some sort of taboo with your people... / Grendel: So all those tales of the Douards being those terrible, evil, slave-owning people go unchallenged! It's a self-perpetuating orthodoxy!
Grendel: No, let's talk about Lutin sexuality some more. It will keep my mind off SLAUGHTER AND MAIMING! / Grendel: I mean, I'm sure that no one challenging it would even get a job in this place, let alone tenure like- / 2. Friend of Grendel: More tea, anyone?

I've had one reader (who will remain anonymous) tell me, a while ago, that he was surprised male faeries didn't have erections all the time. I'm sure it does happen, sometimes, and the faerie Linde's line of questioning shows that she wouldn't have been phazed by it. But it probably doesn't happen much because in a culture where nudity is normal it stops being a sexual trigger by itself. To the Lutin Bleiz, on the other hand, the colour orange is a sexual trigger, but it's only the first in a series. Lutin courtship is elaborate.
